The SPC board has voted to split the cost of court resurfacing/repainting with the park district. All six existing courts will be resurfaced, and the large crack running through courts 2 & 5 will be repaired. The park district hopes to do this some time in April. The SPC board also voted to replace the stolen windscreen by the Challenge Court. The park believes that the person responsible for taking the previous windscreen was caught.
Next time you're at the courts check out the brand new permanent signage installed by the club. We recently had two metal signs printed outlining our court rules and procedures. We also replaced the paper court numbers with hand-made metal signs, and labeled Court #4 as the Challenge Court and Court #6 as the Beginner's Court. On the north side fence, you will also find a new Pickleball Central banner with our club's discount code. Thanks to our President Lee Swayne, Ambassador Steve Cooper, and Judie Cooper for creating and hanging these great looking signs.
Using club funds, the club purchased a sunscreen/windscreen to be installed along the entire length of the East fence. The Sunrise Park District installed the screening on April 7, 2017. Unfortunately, on April 11, someone cut the fence to get access to the courts and removed a large section of the screening. We plan to replace this section sometime soon.
